The UI Interactable component flow graph nodes have been superseded by the UIe Interactable component flow graph nodes. For best results, use the UIe Interactable component flow graph nodes.

Use the following flow graph node for the Interactable component.

UI:Interactable:SetIsHandlingEvents Node

Sets the Boolean "is handling events" state of the element.

The Interactable flow graph nodes can be used to get or set values on any interactive UI element.

Interactive UI elements are elements that players can interacted with in game, such as button, text input, check box, slider, and so on. The SetIsHandlingEvents flow graph node sets whether an interactive UI element should handle input events. If set to false, then the UI element does not respond to input events, and its visual state is also changed to disabled.
